“A wonderfully enchanting, tender and beautifully penned tale.”



I love a bit of Cecilia Ahern, she writes real fairy tales for grown ups and although I don’t rush out to buy her stuff the moment it hits the shelf I’ve ended up reading virtually everything she’s written over the years so when I saw The Time of My Life in the charity shop last week I thought it would make a nice easy read.

It’s quite a chunky book really, but be in no doubt Ahern is easy reading with simple prose and easy to follow story lines and I was through it in a couple of days. It didn’t disappoint either, delivering all the magic I’ve come to expect from the author.

Lucy thinks she’s fine, her life has different ideas and is fed up of being neglected! In true fairytale style he turns up and takes Lucy in hand and what follows is a journey of self discovery that most of us will be able to relate to on some level.

Unlike her earlier books it took me a few chapters to start feeling this one, but it turned out to be as lovely and feel good as Ahern’s previous works. Definitely not my favourite of hers, but worth the read if you’re a fan of the author.
